I have developed something of a fascination for music from the 1920s, the 1930s, and to a more limited extent the 1940s. I am not so much interested in finding original acetate or vinyl, but prefer to seek out the excellent CD compilations that are now available. These come and go quite quickly, so it's necessary to acquire copies while the going's good.
This section of SterlingTimes is divided broadly into two: SterlingMusic covering vintage records and modern groups keen on reproductions, and Children's Music. I will keep the index below updated. It will take me until the end of February 2001 to complete the pages for the site.
